Social Practice


About Us: Social Practice Center, CUHK, Shenzhen

As an integral part of OSA, Social Practice Centre (SPC) focuses on students’ social practice activities. To complement the university’s “whole-person education” ethos, SPC aims at building a comprehensive social practice platform, encouraging students to participate in social practice, and developing their social responsibility. SPC propels students to get to know about the society, as well as utilize what they have learned to serve the society.

 

Our Mission

•Facilitating and coordinating teachers and students to participate in social services

SPC Organizes social service activities such as volunteer teaching in the rural schools, helping the elderly and the disabled, and sponsoring large-scale activities both on and off campus. SPC also supports students’ organizations such as Shimmer, Teach for China in CUHK-Shenzhen, and Volunteer Association.

   

•Offering students various learning and participating opportunities

SPC has established ‘Zhixing’ Summer Social Practice Project. Participants of the project are supported to enter the ‘field’ and write a report based on their research. In addition, ‘Vision’ Visit and Communication Program provides participants with opportunities to visit non-profit organizations, universities, art institutions, and social enterprises, and to attend social good conferences and events.    

 

•Incubating and managing the student organizations dedicated to public good

These student organizations include the Shimmer, Teach for China in CUHK, Shenzhen, City Explorer, and Soap Cycling in CUHK, Shenzhen, etc. SPC welcomes the opportunity to incubate more social good and social innovation projects.
